When we purchased our house, it was already equipped with a boiler furnace.
The boiler was linked to radiators in each of the rooms. While the boiler operated reliably, quietly as well as efficiently, I wasn’t blissful with the radiators. They made a hissing sound whenever they started up as well as became dangerously hot to the touch. I was terrified the kids or the cat would get burned, then plus, those radiators were ugly as well as required manual adjustment. While each one advertised an independent temperature control, I didn’t like having to turn them on as well as off depending on occupancy of the various rooms. When our hubby as well as I finally saved up enough currency to tackle a major remodeling project, I was determined to make replaces to the furnace. I called a local Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C corporation for a consultation. I told him our plans to tear out the old floors, as well as he requested installing radiant floor heating, retrofitting the pipes into our lake new home was a bit luxurious but it was absolutely worth it. The entire heating method is now hidden beneath the floors. It takes up no living space, never detracts from aesthetics as well as makes no noise. It is completely safe as well as spreads the heat evenly across the floors. Walking barefoot on radiant heated floors in the middle of Wintertide is the ultimate in luxury. Plus, the floors are controlled by Wi-Fi temperature controls which allows access from an app on our smartphone. Each room is able to be adjusted remotely as well as independently. The radiant floors still link to the boiler but are way more energy efficient than the old radiators. We’ve not only improved the look as well as think of the house, but we’re saving currency on our heating bills.
